My idiotic little brother opened a *.dll file with notepad, now it's got that NotePad icon on it. It's a real mess because now I can never distinguish between *.dlls and text files. How do I change the icon of all *.dll files back to the original?

DLL or Text

P.S Did I mention my brother's a stupid idiotic ape? >:(

For Windows 7:

Go to the following web page and download the registry file for .dll then double click and say yes to add info to registry. You may or may not need to reboot.

I look at the information you provided and do not believe this is the right way to get you registry files back to normal. I would suggest if its just the file extensions then its advisable to you information providing you operating system, plus to look up how to recover you files from a previous state is a better resolution to the question asked.

Your answer is mostly run-on sentences that are very hard to interpret into a usable shape. – killermist Mar 22 '13 at 17:41
